jps – Java Virtual Machine Process Status Tool

A very power full tool , yet effective for simple use case as well. I use this often when i wasnt to know the specific javaclasses which are running on a server/host.

its a pain to type ps -ef | grep java and read through the pile of information spitted out by the command, instead just use “jps” if you are looking for a java application / calss.

please note : this is not yet supported on Wiondows – for detaile look at sun’s ( now oracle) documentation .
